remember, this is your money and a squabble in washington but your money and the country's credit rating. >>> good evening. welcome to the program. i'm tom foreman. tonight, the scandal in london and squarmed around one of the most powerful men in the world has come to american shores. in the last four hours, four senators have called for investigations into the vast media empire of rupert murdoch. the last media baron, perhaps the most powerful in the united states in terms of power and money and influence. how deep does that run? take a look. the television empire, fox with its news programming is part of his world. 20th century fox was huge, hit films. in publishing, "new york post," "wall street journal," what he has in print, along with harpercollins publishers limited, books like sarah palins, all part of the empire of rupert murdoch. we will dig much deeper into the rupert scandal and one of the senators calling for an investigation. first, one of the other stories we're following tonight. the other barack obama. a new book reveals astonishing information about the father of the president. it opens a new window into the heart and mind of his son, and -- who is thaddeus? a conservative who plays an electric guitar, quotes l.e.d. zeppelin on the house floor and running for president in a crowded field. can he rock out? then, think the debt ceiling debate is a joke, so does paul. >> you're speaking like a conspiracy theorist. >> it's not conspiracy, reality today. >> with both sides talking at each other, maybe it takes a comedie comediene -- come median to get serious. we start with breaking news, showdown or meltdown, we're not sure, at the white house in the middle of those talks. president obama walk out of the debt talks with house republicans saying he has reached his limit. it happened not long ago. cnn's chief white house correspondent joins me now from washington for the latest on the thoughts on tonight's meeting. jessica yellin, tell us what's going on there. >> reporter: that's at least how republicans are accounting today for these debt talks, certainly a political tit for tat going on in these tense negotiations. after today's meetings, both sides came out telling very different stories. what we do know is according to republicans, president obama in the meeting ended it abruptly after lecturing them and then walking out. democratic officials, i'm told by democratic officials a very different story, president obama got frustrated when republicans changed their position in these negotiations. at the very end of the meeting after hearing the republicans now endorsing a short term deal, the very kind of deal president obama has said he will not accept c the kind of deal he said he would veto, he gave a speech. democratic officials say he told the group that this is this kind of political posturing that americans have a great distaste for, the kind of thing they always expect from washington, where politicians take political positions and cater to their bases rather than take hard stands on tough issues. that is when the meeting broke up. no matter which side of the story you believe, tom, the one truth we know is that it is certainly the most tension we've heard come from any of these meetings to date. the bottom line is republicans are now agreeing openly, house republicans, at least, that they do like this idea of a short term debt extension, which requires multiple votes between now and next year's election, which makes it quite a political issue and changes the entire dynamic of these negotiations and, tom, i'll tell you, the president again today repeated he would veto any kind of short term deal, which means if that's what house republicans are pushing for, there is no deal. >> jessica, what about this explosive moment. does this seem to be true where the president in particular confronted republican eric cantor? >> reporter: what i'm told about that moment, a bit of rorschach test, everybody sees it in a different light, this is where the president said to the group, everybody is -- this confirms the worst suspicion everyone has of washington. that the president was frustrated, eric cantor had now endorsed the short term deal idea and was frustrated he had changed off of his prior position where he wanted to go for a real deficit reduction and you know the words of democratic officials into this short term idea. tom, i should point out that, you know, some republicans would argue at this late stage, that's all some people think can get done. so there's different ways to look at it. if i can dial out for a minute and give you a big picture perspective, despite this tit for tat and all this political spinning going on, there is still a meeting scheduled at the white house tomorrow, as far as we san antonknow, all sides are planning to come here and they will be discussing detailed spending cuts and for the first time, this discussion of tax changes. will there be revenue on the table, a major controversial issue. despite all this, there could still be potential progress towards one of these deals tomorrow. we'll see. >> you answered my last question. we'll check back with you later on. they might want to start with decaf tomorrow. >> let's go to our top story now. this is an important thing for all of us to be aware of. this in-depth look at the rupert murdoch scandal as it begins to reverberate in america. we thought it might and indeed it has. murdoch withdrew his bid for bskyb amid the most disturbing allegations that emerged. according to a british paper, journalists from the news of the world approached a new york private investigator to buy phone records of victims from the 9/11 attacks, families of the victims are outraged by these allegations and four senators have now requested a justice department investigation of murdoch's company. i spoke with one of them. senator frank lautenberg, moments ago. senator lautenberg, thanks for joining me here. let me start with the most important question in all this. do you have reason to believe some sort of criminal activity has taken place in this country connected to rupert murdoch's enterprises? >> the one thing i know, not that i just believe, that is an american corporation cannot use bribery. it's a felony. it's against the law and should not be used. >> at this point, you're not talking about these things happening in this country that you know of, although you're curious about that, you're focusing on what's happening over there and the possible repercussions here. what are the possible repercussions. let's say we did find out this? what could happen? >> they could be fined. there could be severe punishment if the corporation has directed people to violate the law. it also, since we've heard that hacking has been taking place and directed at families who suffered as a result of 9/11, loss of a loved one or injury to a loved one. we want to make sure that this practice doesn't escape. we don't know that absolutely, that it has taken place, but it is alleged or suggested that it's taken place. we don't want to permit that. >> you and the other folks who have -- in elected office called for investigation into this right now are all democrats. fox news is widely seen as being very pro republican. you know full well many people are going to say, this is just politics, you guys are going after them because they're a republican vehicle and they're in trouble right now. >> i think it's fair to say that i view it as a responsibility to investigate. it has nothing to do with politics, i'll tell you that. they have no right to break the law if they're an american corporation. it wouldn't matter if they were selling tires or selling news or what have you. those are the rules, those are the laws and we have to obey them. >> one thing i have to ask you about in all of this, one of the issues over in britain was that the politicians were very much involved in this, in that they were afraid of making the media very angry. do you fear any of that here? the simple truth you talk about politicians criticizing the media, you're criticizing people who buy ink by the barrel. >> i'm accustomed to being in this boxing ring here. i served three years in the army. i'm not afraid of repercussions. i know that i'm on the right side of the question. it's going to be asked. i don't think about repercussions. if i think i'm on the right track, that's where i'm going to stay. >> how soon do you want this to move and how soon do you expect it to move, if at all, in this investigation? >> asap. it has to be done in an orderly fashion. i would urge hayes from the justice department because this now lingers over us in a very unpleasant unfair way. >> senator lautenberg, thanks for joining us tonight. >> glad to be here, thanks. >> this, as you can tell is getting ugly here, getting uglier over there. prime minister david cameron was grilled in parliament why he hired a former murdoch editor, a man now under arrest in this hacking scandal despite warnings not to. watch this amazing bit of political theater. >> he just doesn't get it! he just doesn't get it. i say this to the prime minister. he was warned by the deputy prime minister about hiring andy colson. he was warned by lord ashdown about hiring andy colson. he has now admitted in the house of commons today that this is chief of staff was given complete evidence, which contradicted andy colson's previous accounts. the prime minister must now publish the fullest account of all the information provided and what he did and why those warnings went unheeded. >> the decision to employ a tabloid editor meant there were a number of people who said this was not a good idea, particularly when that tabloid editor had been at the "news of the world" when bad things happened. what i did was accept assurances given made to a select committee of the police and law. if i was lied to, that would be a matter of deep regret. i can't be clear about that. we must make sure we ajudge people innocent until proven guilty. >> can the prime minister assure that all activity will be investigated now and this will include the criminal conspiracy between the highest levels in that last government with parts of the murdoch empire including bribing a bank account of lord ashcroft to undermine him and his positions as laid out in dirty politics, dirty times? >> in public life we all are subject to huge amounts of extra scrutiny. that's fair. it's not fair when laws are broken. we've all suffered from this and the fact is we've all been too silent about it. that is part of the problem. your bins are gone through by some media organization but you hold back from dealing with it because you want good relations with the media. we need honesty on this issue on a cross party basis to take on this problem. >> you can see what an earthquake this is causing in their government. that phrase, dirty politics, dirty times. unbelievable. let's consider what this means about the all too cozy relationship between the british government and british press. oliver campbell was the former press secretary for tony blair. i spoke with him today from london. >> thanks for joining us. ire contention is this too cozy relationship between the media and government has been around quite some time and a lot of people knew about it? >> yes. it's not in dispute at all. you go back to margaret thatcher's time as prime minister. i think i'm right in recording she gave five knighthoods to editors who supported her. when we came into office in 1997, that was something we put a stop to by saying no serving entity should get an honor from the queen. what i said in a piece i wrote in the "financial times" the other day, i think there were points we compromised principles we should have adopted to press regulation in this country has been a complete joke against the continuing support we were getting from many sections of the media. i wish that we had done more. >> how do you hit the proper balance here, you're talking about press regulation, you know over here in america, people immediately perk up when they hear that because they say we don't like the media much but we've never liked restrictions on the press. how do you do that? >> i accept that and i instinctively despite the criminality and venamilty and amorality we have seen in recent days, i instinctively am still a believer in self-regulation. however, i'm not sure the generation running the media in britain at the moment can be trusted with it. it's not just about media international exposed for total rottenness, one of the most powerful groups is the mail group. i think they're just as bad and in some ways even worse although let me say the criminality element has not been, as it were, proven. i do think the riots since the '80s, the british press drinking in the last chance saloon. they've been drinking in there heavily ever since. i do hope parliament, once this inquiry is under way and once parliament debates any proposals that come from it, i hope we do start from the standpoint of thinking self-regulation is prefable. i think the public are beginning to wonder whether the people who run our newspapers are capable of self-regulation. the other thing to point out here, we have the broadcast media regulated here. i think most of the broadcast media think the system just about works. >> one of your real concerns here is the way it's working now. i think this is going to resonate with a lot of people here, is such that the media makes it almost impossible for the government to govern because they're so worried about public opinion and then that becomes a convenient excuse for government not doing difficult things because after all we'll get crucified in the media. i reached a point. i worked from 1994 to 2003 and went back for the 2000 election and 2010 election as well. i reached a point. this is myself now, kind of the end of the last millennium really, it didn't really matter what they said about you, what you got to do in government is actually try to do the right thing, make the big long term strategic decisions and try to see them through. those politicians around the world who try to manage their policy making to suit what they think is going to be a media reaction, i think is a complete waste of time. i think what this has done, i hope, is liberated the political class from feeling they have to worry too much about what the media say about them. they should worry about the decisions they take, strategic course they set and they should try to see it through. >> when you look back on the events of that time, do you think you should have been louder and more forceful in saying, this is a poisonous dangerous relationship for the governance of this country? >> well, i probably should. you have to remember, i was -- i was a spokesman. i wasn't an elected politician who went out there and made big speeches and so forth. it's really interesting to watch the british press at the moment. the line they're running on us at the moment, you were so close to murdoch, the line they're running at the time we showed the media complete contempt. they want to have it any way that suits the prevailing mood at the moment. i can remember used to have discussions with president clinton and his team and also with george bush and his team what i think elected politicians around the world now see is a real problem of a many conation of a driving culture of negativity, which is most dominant, i think, in our newspapers and if you like, the frenzy driven reality of news reporting 24-7 on a proliferation of channels and online revolution and so forth is making it more difficult to govern. i think the media has to accept some responsibility, not just for getting viewers, not just for selling papers but for the role it plays within that. i hope we can have a sensible debate about that where the politicians have said they have to change their ways but the journalists accept they have to change, too. >> thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you. >>> this may all sound like something that's happening over there. you can bet your house we're getting more of it coming here to debate we will stay with on this show. coming up, washington as we said at the top is playing hot potato with the debt ceiling. you've got it, no, you've got it, back and forth they go. robert reich sice says enough a. we'll see how he might pull it off. goes into every one. like variable valve timing and turbocharging, active front grille shutters that close at high speeds, and friction reducing -- oh, man, that is complicated. how about this -- cruze eco offers 42 miles per gallon. cool?

>> it matters to everybody else for a simple reason, if the credit rating of the united states is downgraded, that means all the borrowing the united states needs to do and wants to do in the future is going to cost more. everybody who lends money to the government is going to demand higher interest rates. those higher interest rates with make the budget deficit even worse. the down grading is very very serious. a potential down grading is very serious. what this amounts to, i'm going beyond my seven seconds, i want to put the politics into this, what this amounts to is essentially more political pressure on democrats and republicans to come up with a deal. >> you've actually opened the door to the next question here. when you look at what's going on right now, you've written a column that has suggested is one of the problems is politically everyone wants to move this down the road and not deal with it because they have painted themselves into corners they can't get out of but practically, we shouldn't let that happen. explain that. >> it's a giant game of chicken. obviously, republicans are saying if you do not go along with our plan, and we refuse to raise taxes on the wealthy, we are going to vote against raising the debt limit. democrats are saying you have to raise taxes, particularly on the wealthy, with regard to the budget agreement or there's no deal at all. both sides in washington right now are at complete loggerheads. in washington, it's a very strange place. i've worked there for many years, i can tell you, it's its own planet. in washington, if you have that kind of situation, the only way out that provides kind of face-saving device for both sides is something like mitch mcconnell suggested yesterday, give an opportunity for the republicans to vote against raising the debt ceiling but allow the president to do it nonetheless and put all the onus on the president and all the responsibility on the president and essentially, make the election about that decision. >> i find it really surprising you talk about the mcconnell solution as being something that actually might be taken up because it was so roundly beaten up in washington immediately as a ridiculous plan that can't possibly work. but you think it may actually be the only avenue left, something like that? >> something like that is the only avenue. i think it was roundly criticized particularly by republicans who have tea party constituents, heavily tea party influence because they wanted to show they didn't want to compromise at all and would not compromise. but you see the mcconnell solution or compromise itself gives everybody in the republican party and opportunity to vote squarely against raising the debt ceiling. that's the bottom line, what they want. they don't want to go into an election having voted to raise the debt ceiling. at the same time, the debt ceiling has to be raised. the moody's decision today reflecting a possible down grading of the united states treasury bills, would be a disaster, and pressure is building. financial pressure from wall street, from big business, from basically the sources of campaign money for the republican party. that's the issue. >> do you think that anybody comes out a winner in this whole thing. it feels like somebody is triangulating a weird political advantage in next year's race. i'm not sure either side can bet on this playing for them. >> no, i don't think anybody comes out a winner. i think the american public is disgusted with all this political maneuvering, want the debt ceiling raised to the extent most people are looking at the debt ceiling at all and want the budget dealt with. most people in the united states are not paying attention to any of this, paying attention to jobs and wages, worried about personal finances. they want the president and congress to come up with some sort of plan to create more jobs in the united states. >> i want to ask you about that. we are running a little bit short on time. you had a pretty sharp response to the president's response to the latest jobs report. require right. this is the issue for americans, i want to be secure in my job and my home and some sense i can grow and the sense the white house at some point seems to be shrugging and saying, it's tough, we don't know what to do. >> i think it's dangerous. we're more than a year away from the next election. when we get into the gravitational pull of the 2012 election, it will be very soon we get into that gravitational pull, the president has to have a jobs plan. he has to say to the public, even if i can't get this through the republican house, i am going to fight for it because i am fighting for jobs and wages. i know this is what you americans care most about. >> robert reich, always goods to have you with us to talk about things. we look forward to your insights. >>> up next, dramatic footage out of libya. you will want to see this. cnn's ben wedeman and his camera crew were caught in the crossfire today. it's really quite astounding and a reminder how our troubles and difficulties stretch all around the globe right now. stick with us. hey ! chocolate, vanilla or strawberry ?

>> we're going to bring to the table things people aren't talking about. we're hearing about limited government and not talking about restructuring government to match the challenges of our time. you're living on a communications revolution on a blackberry, you can purchased a service around the world and you have access to more information and input your decisions into the community than any other time in human history. what we seop sit our self-driven government earning society is remnants of the welfare state imploding around us, number one. number two, what you also have is failure of bailed out banks to be fixed. we have to restructure them to get credit down to help the 14 million unemployed get back to work, help the 30 million people that can't find better jobs be able to. these are the things we need to talk about. in foreign affairs we understand challenges in the middle east but no one is talking about the long time threat of our strategic rifle, communist china. >> you had no hesitation attacking other republican rivals many don't do. you heard about the obama romney economy and saying they're less rivals than running mates. that's not normal republican talk. >> it's talk and true. you look at the underlying premises mr. romney refuses to say he was mistaken on, wall street bailout too big to fail principle, o caromny care effectiveness reach and climate change, he still believes those were proper principles to implement decisions. this is very disconcerting to those who spent our time in the u.s. house against those. >> you make a point. you've been in the house some time now. >> i point out this is my ninth year. my neighbors are john dingle and john conyers, who have been in congress longer than i've been alive. great guys. >> fair enough. >> you know what the argument is against anybody who's been in washington five years, six years, nine years, if you were going to change things, what have you changed? >> i measure the legislative process not by putting your name on a bill and hoping it gets passed. my first time was in a gop on decline and not doing the reconstruction necessary let alone deal with communist china or bailed out banks and spent a lot of time trying to fight against things like the wall street bailout we thought were wrong, held a majority of republicans against it and unfortunately it still passed with a democratic congress and president. >> you voted for the auto bailout. >> it was not sin mouse, voted against existing loans to get to a points they could restructure. the wall street bailout when the t.a.r.p. money was spent, $700 billion parked that came out of mainstream's pocket and you go back to have it failed to go back to mainstream and have a factory base or don't. as a social construct to say to wall street bankers too big to fail and according to the "new york times" too big to jail as well. if you take that money from working people and say you're important enough to keep, you who are blue collar work in the factories, you aren't, you're not only gutting your manufacturing base at a time china is ready to pass us, you're also saying to them some citizens are more important than others and i fundamentally reject that. >> let's do real world play acting. you're the president right now, you're facing this holding on the debt ceiling right now, what would you do differently than this president or anybody else to solve this problem? >> first, the hypothetical doesn't work because i didn't go on a two year spending binge when i controlled everything. secondly i control cap and balance the republicans alternative to this and i add we have to have a balanced budget amendment submitted to the states. if you listen to the american public, they're very concerned about this and rightly so. they also never want to be in this position again, i would argue cut cap balance and long term have balanced budget amendment and puts the sovereign people in the room with the appropriators you know absent any other higher authority we keep spending money. >> your favorite players jimi hendrix? >> i said number one. >> amid clapton and stevie ray. >> he is in london and towns and clapton go in to watch him and said who is the new kid in town. they both watched him and went home and didn't play guitar for weeks. if i have to play, i'll play like townsend or keith richards. >> i tell you, you have to do a lot of that. it's hard to break out of this pack right now. the biggest criticism is you're kind of a quiet guy, thoughtful guy and you have to break out somehow. >> i've heard worse but i'll take that. >> all right. that mccotter, good luck with your run. if you win, come back and see us again. >> i will. >> excuse me while i run for president. up next, barack obama srenior, fascinating new book on the man who gave his son his name and complicated legacy that goes with it. to playing "angry bird" it lets you access business forms on the go, fire off e-mails with the qwerty keypad, and work securely around the world so you can get back to playing "angry birds." it's the android-powered phone that mixes business with pleasure. so let's get our work done, america, so we can all get back to playing "angry birds." the motorola expert from sprint. trouble hearing on the phone?

[ male announcer ] we are insurance. ♪ we are farmers ♪ bum, ba-da-bum, bum, bum, bum ♪ >>> it looks like president obama has finally put the birther controversy to rest. even though his autobiography was called "dreams from my father," there has not been much about his african-american dad, obama senior, it portrays a man who spent time in hawaii and harvard, had many wives and drank a lot and died in obscurity in 1982. this is a fascinating look at a really unknown character. the author, sally jacobs joins me now. what fascinated you about this man? >> clearly, there was very little known about barack obama senior. as we headed towards the nomination, quite a bit was known about the would be president's mother. the father was quite unknown. in "dreams from my father" he writes a bit about him. >> in a nutshell what kind of man was he? >> he was bold and reckless, a very courageous person who spoke out against the administration at a time it was dangerous to do so and he was also extremely reckless. he was a have a drinker and had a loose relationship with the truth at times. >> this was a man born in poverty in kenya, in many ways an unlikely candidate to wind up over here in hawaii impressing people with his intellect being good at math, good at thought, all this, very unlikely character. >> certainly, his journey was extraordinary. he did grow up in a very poor situation at a time children had no shoes. if you had shoes, you certainly didn't wear them, saved them for special occasion. he wound up in his mid-20s at harvard university not just there but he succeeded there to some extent, passed all his exams and had only his dissertation left to write. he was very brilliant. >> he like his father before him had a streak of wildness and cruelty to him to a degree. >> he himself was cruel, you mean? >> less so than his father before him. there was still a sense of that. >> he was somewhat abusive. certainly one of his wives, some of his children experienced that. i think he had experienced that himself as a child. that was what he knew. >> this was not a man that barack obama, our president, knew really at all in his life? >> no, he did not. they lived together or were in the same city the first nine months of the president's life. he saw his father again for about a month in 1971, when obama senior came to honolulu to visit. it was not a terrific visit. by the end as the president writes himself, he was rather for his father to go. >> what was going on at that point? at 10 years old, we are so vulnerable and reliable to adults to have him come back in his life. his mother presented him as a positive figure and described him as a talented economist he was. when the real thing appears, obama junior was taken with him and watching him closely as he describes in his book. i think his father telling him what to do towards the end began to wear on him in the end, obama junior was raving to watch a favorite television program and his father said, no no no, you need to go do your homework and erupted into the adults arguing and obama junior admits he was ready for his father to leave and the last time he saw him. >> one of the things you explore briefly, the other side of the coin, his father could have stayed, he did not, there was some talk of putting up our president, when he was a boy, for adoption, a baby. >> yes. >> basically the mother and father saying we have to put him off somewhere else. now the father said that. the mother did not as far as we know. what i found was a document, a memo in his immigration file in which obama senior says to the foreign student advisor at the university of hawaii ann dunham is making arrangements with the salvation army to put the baby up for adoption. did they do that? we don't really know. obama senior could have made it up, made his portrait look better. up for visa renewal. it seems unlikely ann dunn could have done that kind of thing. he did say it so a reflection his father would have gone that far. >> how different things would have been. interesting book called "the other barack." thanks. we appreciate it. three strains of good bacteria to help balance your colon. you had me at "probiotic."

i have people i have known for years and years who are saying, i think we've lost our mind as a country. >> unbelievable. what's hard to separate is the actual issues and how they are conveyed to us and how we process them. it's become completely unrecognizable. >> you look at things like our judicial system, people very upset this week at the judicial system. do you think the problem is the judicial system or the way we report on and talk about the judicial system? >> both simultaneously and neither simultaneously. that's why it's crazy. it's like multiple universes simultaneously. when i look at what just happened with the casey anthony trial, i think to myself, i believe a person is innocent until they're proven guilty. i had no idea they could be innocent after they're proven guilty. it has to say something. the resonance with the o.j. trial, it has to say there is something definitely wrong -- >> you see that beyond the judicial system. see that in the political system. i know plenty of politicians who actually are very dedicated caring public servants who really want to do the right thing, somehow you put them all together in the capital in washington and it can't get done. ? we have one centralized government trying to come up with blanket laws and ways of living together for 300 million people over 3,000 miles in diameter. it's a crazy idea. i subscribe to the old adage he who governs closest governs best. you try to get 300 million people happy with the same decision, you will end up with 300 million people upset with the same decision. >> do you think that's one of the problems? i have wondered about the size. we're the third largest country in land mass like china and india. they're not a democracy like we are. do you think we've reached a tipping point it's not feasible to use the systems we have. >> i believe -- keep in mind i'm a comic. i don't know anything. >> so you're not to be trusted. >> it is my opinion but i do have that stepback you talked about. to me c this country was founded with states having real identities and real power of their own because this country really -- the people are different and especially since it's a nation of immigrants, the idea one central government can determine what's best for and policies that serve everybody in this country is a bad idea going in. you would never have any power structure starting out with that in mind. >> i've always said there's a gap between the real world and official world. the official world says all sorts of things. they say productivity is up and this is better. in the real world, people say i'm paying higher bills, more afraid for my job and it's not better. >> it's a power structure we never address so powerful and globally so, that's this corporate accuracy and everything else gets lost in the shuffle. experts devoted their lives to understanding it understand global finance and technology and media, how it's affecting us, none of us understand it to participate. >> you sound like a conspiracy theorist right now. >> no, no. >> i can't understand it therefore -- >> it's not a conspiracy. a culture what life is today. you cannot fix anything in your house anymore. >> that's true. >> we've gotten to the point really we hear people on tv all the time talking about their opinions, man on the street, what happened to casey anthony? nobody knows anything, we have no idea, the reality has gotten so complicated we can't actually participate in the process. >> we have a new presidential election coming up. do you see any hope we're moving toward any sort of conclusion, because frankly, we're all getting tired of the chaos. >> i'll tell you something, this is really interesting -- first, i think one of the big problems we have in this country is the two-party system. as far as i'm concerned that's only one party more than a to ta talltarian state. no margin of error. i don't believe man can change the system, too unwieldy? >> you don't think president obama can't change -- >> can't change the system. i believe he's sincere, generally progressive, cares and very intelligent. look what we're asking him to do, asking him to do all the things he promised and values he espouses in what is a turkish bizarre. >> democrats having spent time in washington don't really want anything to change anyway. >> thank you. >> that's the

nation challenge. thanks for being with us today. i'm dr. sanjay gupta. more news on cnn starts right now. >>> good sunday morning. casey anthony is a free woman. she walked out the front door of a florida jail just hours ago, but where is she now? also, today, a big day for the women of the u.s. world cup soccer team. they may be the odds on favorite to win the world cup final today, but they are not the favorites. i am t. j. holmes. thank you for being with us today. let's start with the story that seems to have come to some kind of an end. this is casey anthony leaving jail 12 days after being found not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter. she walked out the front door, which was a surprise to many. anthony was found guilty of lying to police, and that got her a four--year-sentence, and you factor in time served and good behavior, and she's out. this comes three years and a day after she was first arrested on the disappearance of her daughter. david mattingly joins us. this was a surprise to many that she walked out the front door. >> reporter: that's right. there are a number of scenarios in mind, and they had several contingency plans at the jail depending what was going on at the time. as she walked out there were hundreds, very focal, and many holding signs, and it was an emotional time, and they allowed her to walk outside to a waiting suv, and from there they went straight out on to the expressway. and it's a downtown orlando news helicopter followed that vehicle to a building where one of the defense attorneys has an office, and after that they lost sight of her, so they went on from there to parts unknown. this lasted only about 30 seconds. she didn't say anything. she kept looking down. she did not make any sort of visual contact with the crowd that was there. she did say thank you to one of the guards as she was leaving the jail, but that was it, no expression or comments, nothing. there were a couple journalists allowed to embed, to to speak, and get the pictures we have been looking at this morning. here is what they had to say. >> she walked out, and when she walked out she had a sign of relief on her face and walked by one of the sergeants and she thanked him and continued rapidly outside. >> she was not smiling. she wasn't frowning, and did not look joyful. >> two officers were behind her with green bullet proof vests and semiautomatic weapons strapped on them, and it was quiet until she worked out, and then there was a burst of a cafaphonic scream. >> and jose baez and her got out quickly. there were police officers on horse back blocking the crowd as well, making sure there was no traffic or anybody trying to follow them. after a matter of minutes, after it was all over, the crowd dissipated and everybody going back home in the wee hours of the morning. >> any indications of where she is going to go? where she is going to live? what she is going to do? >> reporter: all of the affiliates here in the orlando area were watching the airports around orlando. there was no confirmation of her getting on any flights leaving the area. it's really not known anywhere where she might be. her defense team made it clear that they felt she would be unsafe after she got out of here. there was talk about her leaving the orlando area where she is such a recognizable figure. and there has been no indication whatsoever where she might go. but the strategy appears to be for the moment for her to stay out of the public eye. remember, she has a number of civil cases now working through the courts that she is involved with, so she has a lot more to do, a lot more legal work on the table in her near future that she has to work through as she is trying to get her own life back together, t. j. >> david mattingly for us in orlando. we appreciate you as always. >>> i want our viewers to take a look at something else down the road from the home of casey anthony's parents. this memorial was set up for caylee. it has seen a lot of visitors this weekend. a lot of people leaving flowers and stuffed animals and signs for little caylee. well, at five minutes past the hour, let me turn to chile, to the rescue chilean miners. they filed a lawsuit against their own government. a great story it was. trapped for 69 days after the mine cave-in last august, and they are asking for half a million dollars each in damages. but they say this lawsuit is not about money, but about safety. they want the government to tighten safety measures. >>> and it's a big day for the usa women's soccer team. the u.s. women are the odds on, the betting favorite to win this game, but no doubt, japan the sentimental favorites around the world, and they are playing for so much after their country went through the tsunami and earthquake, and they had to practice in the daytime because they cannot practice at night in japan, and they had to deal with so many other things because of the earthquake and tsunami. the last time the u.s. won the title was back in 1999. we will get more from germany live coming up a little later in this hour. >>> right now it's time to say good morning to mr. reynolds wolf. things are hot. >> yes, indeed, they are. perfect day to watch inside and watch the world cup. heat is going to be the big story. we have 16 states with some kind of watch, warning or advisory. and with the high humidity, it's going to feel like it's 110 as high as 120 in many spots around the nation. we will give you a tropical update and give you an idea of what is happening in terms of thunderstorms, and a good possibility of those popping up today. >> thank you so much. >>> rupert murdoch is practicing what he is going to say to lawmakers this week. we have that and news that he has a new celebrity pr guy. we go in depth. it's seven minutes past this hour on "cnn sunday morning." stay with me. the less time i have to take care of me. that's why i like glucerna shakes. they have slowly digestible carbs to help minimize blood sugar spikes, which can help lower a1c. glucerna products help me keep everything balanced.

[ male announcer ] find your program at phoenix.edu. how'd you learn to do that? what'd you use? every project we finish comes with a story built-in. it's how our rough ideas become "you did that yourself?" so when we can save more on the projects that let us fix, make, and do more... that just makes the stories even better. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. right now, get glentown oak laminate flooring just 68 cents a square foot. as much as i can about a company before i invest in it. that's why i like fidelity. they give me tools and research i can't get anywhere else. their stock screener lets me search for stocks with more than 140 criteria. i can see what their experts are thinking and even call them to bounce an idea off of one of their investment professionals. a good strategy relies on good insight. if you wanted to learn more about a company, i think you'd actually have to be there. somewhere in america, there's a doctor who can peer into the future. there's a nurse who can access in an instant every patient's past. and because the whole hospital's working together, there's a family who can breathe easy, right now. somewhere in america, we've already answered some of the nation's toughest healthcare questions. and the over 60,000 people of siemens are ready to do it again. siemens. answers. personal pricing now on brakes. tell us what you want to pay. we do our best to make that work. deal! my money. my choice. my meineke. >>> the u.s. is playing japan this afternoon, and we turn to nadya billcheck. they are a good team. >> they are a great team. >> but the sentimental favorite has to be japan in this match. >> look what the japanese have been through. look at the japanese team. they can't even practice at night because of the nuclear crisis and the energy shortage. they cannot light up the fields at night so they have not been able to practice. and japan is experiencing a huge heat wave which resulted in all kinds of interesting things happening, including the wearing of cooling foam. >> yeah, we have seen this. >> very fascinating cooling foam. we have to take a look at it and i hope we have it to show you. and people are wearing suits that have pockets where they can put cooling packs. they say necessity is the mother of invention. with all of this, the japanese have not used the weather as an excuse. the north koreans, however when they played the u.s. at the evened of june, they used the reason, they said a lightning strike during practice struck five of the players that had to be hospitalized -- >> that's a legitimate excuse. but i think we should find our reynolds wolf -- >> magically, i am here. >> reynolds, what are the chances of five players being simultaneously hit by lightning. >> probably higher than a jeti trip being deployed. they had a lightning strike that injured 77 cadets at one time. it can happen. did it actually happen? we'll never know. >> how does that happen? the lightning hits the ground or hits something that they are all standing on? >> yeah, absolutely. one bolt -- >> i have to tell you this part. >> bring it on. >> the north korean team has been accused of taking steroids, and they say it was the chinese medicine that they had to use the gland of a deer that they had to use because of the lightning strike. >> you know, i have had any side affects from deer glands, but to cause lightning strikes to take out five people, i don't know. >> and in june of last year, the men's world cup soccer team, the coach had an invisible phone where he could speak to kim jong-il, and -- >> i stayed with you on the lightning strike and the chinese medicine, and you lost me on the invisible phone. >> the coach said i am speaking to the leader, kim jong-il, and he invented the invisible phone. but the force of kim jong-il was not with them. >> i have to answer my invisible phone and it's a collect -- i am not accepting it. >> it's interesting to see who the force will be with in the game. >> yeah, 2:45 eastern time. >>> we will have more on the women's world cup. also, as we get close to the bottom of the hour, the casey anthony case started with a search for a missing little girl. the story of caylee's disappearance and death is a long stream of media stories on missing white girls. i am talking with a woman that is trying to raise awareness of the large number of minority children that go missing and get no media coverage. that is next. >>> the casey anthony case started with a story of a missing little girl. 2008, thousands of people joined in the search for missing 2-year-old caylee anthony. the media got a hold of the story and didn't let go. people could not get enough of this drama surrounding the discovery of the body and the trial of her mother, casey. but there are other cases that got tons of attention on tv and the nation. what do some of these have in common? the victims, a lot of people will tell you, are all attractive, and they are all from white middle classed families. critics have given the trend a name. they call it missing white woman syndrome. according to the group, a child is reported missing every 40 seconds in the united states, and 42% of those children are african-american. but how about this? can you name one of them? president of peas in their pods joins me now. you focus on minority children. are we in a day and age where an organization like yours is necessary, and is that a shame? >> sadly it is necessary and it is a shame, but it's definitely necessary as you said every 40 seconds is missing, and 42% are african-american. as people wake up today i promise you they know more about casey anthony and lindsay lohan and j lo's marital status than they do any of the names or the faces of the kids that you are scrolling. >> we are showing their names and faces of some of the kids from your website. but i guess how do you go about getting the message out? i will admit, i was not familiar with the organization until it was brought to me by my team. you said yourself you were not familiar with the organization. how do you get the message out? >> we rely on everyday people to send out e-mails letting people know that children go missing, and we do a lot of advocacy ourselves in getting the word out. >> who is failing? us in the media, because we pick and choose which stories and which kids we want to focus on? >> i would not blame the media solely for the fact that we do have this white woman syndrome as you called it, the white missing women syndrome, as you called it. if they want to see a more diverse look at the kids missing, of course you are not going to put it on because you don't think anybody will watch. it will take everybody in our communities to stand up and let you know that listen, kids like saw nia davis and all of these other kids are important, too. >> there was a quote that i think that i read from you, the media is one thing, but also the public, there's something out there where they just don't seem to value minority children or african-american children as much. what do you mean by that? >> i say that to say because the community has not demonstrated an interest in it, then the media doesn't value these children. the magazines are not going to put them on the covers because they will not sell, so they think. can they be valued? absolutely. >> i have two examples we wanted to use. a couple kids we want to focus on. two kids people probably never heard. joshua davis. >> he is a toddler missing out of texas who went missing from his family's home. there are a number of people in the house. he is -- barely 2 years old, and cannot reach the doorknob, but somehow they are alleging he got out and walked the streets. he has not been seen since. the police say they are a number of pedestrian files listed in the area. it's a convoluted case. where is joshua? >> another name, tyler thomas. another name nobody has ever heard. once i read the details, this sounded like other stories. >> a 19-year-old college student. good student. she was out partying with her friends and we spoke with her friends she was with that night, a little bit of drinking going on and she left home to go by herself, and somehow she got into a car with a 29-year-old gentleman who was attending the college as well. he has been arrested. he is saying that they had consensual sex, and she was going to tell everybody that she was raped by him, and she has never been seen since. >> and this is something that a police officer out in oakland and it stayed with me. he said another thing about the missing minority kid cases, is minority families are skeptical of the media and are reluctant to step forward and say i will do the interview, with often times the middle class white families are more media savvy. do you think that could be the case? >> that could be the case as well. a lot of kids of color missing are listed as runaways. that's another major problem when we talk about missing kids of color. >> we appreciate you being here. again, a lot of people might be shaking their heads, and it's unfortunate an organization is necessary, but it is. thank you for bringing it to our attention and being here this morning. >> thank you. >>> we're at 35 minutes past the hour now. we will turn to politics where the republican presidential candidate jon huntsman met with other governors for the national governors' association meeting. after the meetings, though, look at what he did. huntsman jumped on his harley for a quick ride. he led 50 bikers through the streets of salt lake city. >>> michele bachmann said she is ready to sign the conservative pledge on the budget deficit. it's called cut cap and balance. most of the other candidates have signed on. bachmann thought the pledge did not go far enough. >>> coming up, will he or won't he run for president?

jacob lou will join us from office of the budget. and they say maybe there's something on the revenue side to break the impasse. we'll see where they are. they have been meeting all weekends long. and what we're getting from the hill is not much has happened, but they are talking, which is better than nothing. time is awasting here and they don't have it yet. >> have you seen this photo? this is new video we're seeing from friday's meeting at the white house between the president and ruby bridges? have you seen this thing? >> i have not. >> she was immoralized by norman rockwell, in the painting here. 6-year-old bridges was the first african-american student to attend a all-white school. he got to meet her. isn't that something to see those two standing there together? >> it is. it's obviously a very appropriate white house to have it in. you know, i forgot what it was memorializing, and that's an iconic picture to look at and you know the picture. >> a lot of people know the picture but don't know the story. there she is after all these years. wanted to share that with you. >> thank you. >> good to see you. >> good to see you. i was here and you were gone. >> you didn't have to throw that out there. >> okay. fair enough, candy. but i am here with you this weekend, and candy will be with you viewers here in about 13 minutes and 27 seconds, 9:00 a.m. eastern time, and 6:00 a.m. pacific, right here for "state of the union." >>> coming up, we will head live to germany. our own zane virgie is hanging out with the u.s. soccer team before the big match today. >>> also, you want to get a date with a big star?
